I haven't tried the Highway One Stratocaster yet, nor will I very soon, but I'm wondering can this guitar crank out nice hard rock tones, like Black Stone Cherry and classic rock tones (not the HSS one, the SSS one)
It should be able to crank out anything. Only thing I would advise is to buy locking tuners for it.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
